There is an ever increasing number of immunosuppressive agents in use for treatment of haematological malignancies, multisystem autoimmune diseases, and for anti-rejection therapy in transplant recipients. Such agents may predispose to certain infections based on their particular immune arm target. This chapter covers the key information on the most common of these agents necessary to aid the assessment of an unwell patient who may be taking one or more of these agents. This is, however, a rapidly evolving field.
